Picco Restaurant

Reviewed By BenjiBusinessDog - San Francisco, California

Spectacular food, casual atmosphere, good staff. The toasted gnocchi and french fries are world class (although eliminating the romesco FF sauce is a bummer). Truly. Avocado bruschetta and tuna tartar are long term winners. Run, don't walk, to Larkspur. Ask for the soft serve ice cream from the (excellent) sister pizzeria next door; not on the menu, yet delicious. Only complaint is the sticky toffee cake, otherwise known as the best dessert in NorCal has goon missing. :(

Sol Food Puerto Rican Cuisine

Reviewed By ViewsAndReviews - Albuquerque, New Mexico

This beautifully appointed cozy restaurant is a foodie delight and truly transports me back to many wonderful Puerto Rican memories. The atmosphere is fun and the decor is too including a wall of old doors. Food so good I returned two days in a row before leaving town! Try the Huevos Benedictos over tostones— nice wheat free diversion made to perfection! Day 2 back for a Jamon y Queuso sandwich on tostones....plus a Cafe Helado. Adorable fun atmosphere and long lines to get in so go early— recommend 11 am. Metered parking but a few blocks away are free 2- hour spots and the train is close by too. Cute downtown area for walking and people watching.

Rustic Bakery

Reviewed By SkinnyDippen - Preston

We walked across the street from the Courtyard Marriott for breakfast. The strata was so flavorful and melted in your mouth. The spinach tomato quiche was tasty and cooked to perfection. Fresh orange juice and pastries were the perfect finish to a wonderful breakfast. The bakery was very quaint and had outdoor seating as well. Loved it!

Jason's Restaurant

Reviewed By Thepenn

The ambience of Jasons is very minimalist, with blue colored walls, not the best looking.

We had rib eye steaks they were quite large, but did not have a sauce with them
It came with jalapeño mashed potatoes and sauteed spinach. It was so so nothing note worthy.

Desert was enjoyable I had the apple pie my husband and the cheesecake, both made at the restaurant.

Emporio Rulli

Reviewed By HikingLee - San Jose, California

Looking for coffee on a cold, foggy Saturday morning, we found Emporio Rulli and each enjoyed some really good tasty coffee and a french pastry...each one different, delicious and well worth the 'calorie hit.'

If you are in the area, this place is worth a stop.

Half Day Cafe

Reviewed By comfytravel - Illinois

The restaurant serves breakfast and lunch only, closes at 2:30 PM. Between 11:30 and noon you can order from both menus. Very pleasant atmosphere, eggs in all combinations and pancakes for breakfast, several substantial entrees for lunch. Most dishes very tasty, but the coffee is of the worst and cheapest kind. Also, the place does not have its own bakery, so the bread does not nearly match the quality of food. At brunch time expect short, but slow queues.

Valenti & Co

We make our own pastas, butchering, bread, pastries... we make extensive use of wholesome local and Italian ingredients and even grow several of our fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables and raise our own eggs in a state certified facility. We like to be wholesome, it's hard work, but like chef Valenti says "after all, I do eat here everyday!" Our wine list is crafted around our cuisine, so we feature mostly Northern Italian wines some of which you'll be thrilled to discover. On any given day we have at least 20 wines by the glass and on-tap from $6 and up.

Reviewed By Irwin T

If you can get a reservation, though somewhat expensive, a dinner here is well worth it. Everything about our dining experience was wonderful. The menu dishes are not the ordinary fare. Our dinner was well prepared and presented. Our server took care of our needs without being intrusive. There was no rushing, we spent two hours there with our friends.
